    What do you the user have to say about these Clasic discs. Has anyone had any bad experiences with these discs or have you had unlimited success?

    They are ok for non-essential archival. Do not expect any kind of reliability if used in a standalone player.

    Xboxes (with Samsung drives) can just about cope with 4X written discs, with a few skips when reading the outer edge of the disc.

    I have no experience with PS2, though I imagine they would have problems.

    Ridata Ritek's are going for 94p each on http://www.blankdiscshop.co.uk (in lots of 50). Why not use them instead?

    They are Princo discs - not the worse discs you can buy but not the best either. They are OK for data but with movies you are likely to get the odd second or two freeze at random intervals on playback.
